    It is unique in all the world.  It is made by McCormick, the spice people, but nowhwere on their web site can you find it.  That is curious because McCormick has been making Camp Coffee for well over a hundred years.  The only place you can order it online is Sybertooth.  However, it is sold at many English and Scottish specialty stores.

    We were discussing it in shortfinals diary last night. The subject of the diary was tea, but it quickly switched to coffee, especially Camp Coffee. We concluded that McCormick must be ashamed of it, although no Scottish and many English households would be without it.

      I couldn't find a comprehensive list.

      Boy has coffee changed in my ifetime. When I was youngg i was either perked regullarly or instant. Coffee shops meant donut shops. Perked coffee aand donuts.
      then drip coffee started to come in style in the early 70s, then espresso drinks became poppular.
      I remember first drinking lattes and cappuccinos on Telegraph avenue, Berkeley at the Caffe Med (its still there!) in the early 60s. That was THE ONLY place in town where you could get a capp or latte. It was unheard of  outside of there.
      noe you can get them in just about any Safeways. Starbucks is everywhere. I am really happy about the proliferation of coffee drink shops, I never hang out in bars

      Happy just to be alive
